Wheatgrass Juice Nutritional Analysis

Science does not possess the tools to quantify the power of raw / living food products; however, it does provide the best comparative tools we currently possess.  At this time, over 3,800 nutrients have been identified in food with countless more unidentified nutrients.  Wheatgrass juice is well regarded because it contains a small amount of a broad spectrum of nutrients.  When consumed as a fresh or frozen juice, it is raw, living and highly bio-availability because the juicing process breaks through indigestible fibers and releases their contents.  Raw / living foods hold three advantages over processed supplements:
  • Raw foods contain a broad spectrum of identified nutrients
  • Better still, raw foods contain thousands of unidentified nutrients because they have not been heated, cooked, dried, powdered, oxidized, canned, irradiated, pasteurized or bottled
  • Most bio-chemical reactions are complex and need several ingredients to occur.  The optimal fuel for your body is more likely the combination of many nutrients rather than a large amount of a single nutrient.
